Vegan Broccoli Carrot Quinoa Bites

These quinoa bites are loaded with nourishing ingredients like broccoli, carrots, flaxseed, and spelt flour (for more protein). And the nutritional yeast provides the perfect hint of a “cheesy” flavor which is a win-win for everyone. The great thing about these bites is that whoever you are trying to feed - babies, toddlers, kids, or just adults - they seem to be a crowd pleaser! And that’s my favorite kind of meal :)

Berry Pecan Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is totally underrated. It's so easy and yummy and just all around awesome. It can be a breakfast, snack, or dessert, and can easily be prepped ahead of time and heated up right before serving. Since making this, I have eaten it for breakfast in the morning....as an afternoon snack....and as an after dinner treat, topped with my favorite cashew milk ice cream. YUM!

Vegan Broccoli "Cheddar" Soup

Soups are hands down my favorite thing to make. They are easy, can be packed with nourishing ingredients, and can develop a really deep, complex flavor. Oftentimes soup is better the second or third day once the flavors have had a chance to meld together. That is...if it lasts until the second or third day (insert gritted teeth emoji + upside down smile emoji).

Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes + This Weekend At Macy's!

I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that Thanksgiving is next week! This year is FLYING. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. Scott and I usually get up early and either run in a Turkey Trot road race or do our own workout. We didn't sign up for an official race this year, so we will most likely be hitting up our local gym to get a little turkey day workout in by ourselves. After our workout, I'll be heading into the kitchen to whip up a few dishes to bring to my family's Thanksgiving dinner.

Nutty Banana Hemp Granola

Just look at those clusters! Now that's what I'm talking about. This is my favorite type of granola...nutty with extra large clusters. I forgot about granola for a long time. I know, I know, what kind of plant-based eater am I if I "forgot" about granola?! Sorry granola, I'll never forget about you again. Especially this granola.
